After the demise of Steps, Lisa Scott-Lee turned her hand to music management. Her first project was 3SL, a boyband who also happened to be her brothers.
‘Deeper Shade Of Blue’ was a watershed moment for Steps, marking a significant shift in their sound and thrusting them in a bold new direction.
‘Better Best Forgotten’ allowed Steps to consolidate their identity as a chart-topping success, while hurriedly recording a new album.
‘Say You’ll Be Mine’ is a significant – yet oft-overlooked – curio from Steps, as their first single to feature every member of the group on lead vocals.
‘Chain Reaction’ took all the core Steps elements and shoved a rocket up their arse, resulting in one of the group’s most brilliant – and bonkers – moments.
We caught up with Lolly to talk about Spotify, which single she didn’t want to release and why Jess Glynne was the wrong choice to support the Spice Girls.
Lisa Scott-Lee’s second solo single ‘Too Far Gone’ was harmless enough – but ended up being embroiled in a disastrous case of record label politics.
Steps released their third single in the summer of 1998. And just like that, ‘One For Sorrow’ was the moment everything fell into place for the group.
‘When I Said Goodbye’ saw Steps fulfil the obligation that every pop act must release a ballad once per album – even if no-one really wanted them to.
As debut singles go, ‘Be The First To Believe’ was an intriguing premise, with a title that sounds more like a promotional tagline for a1 than a song lyric.
